LENTEN BOOTCAMP DAY 18 – PEACE

DAY 18 – VIRGIN MOST POWERFUL, PRAY THAT WE RECEIVE THE FRUIT OF PEACE!

Becoming “Masters of Mental Prayer.” Each day, during Lent, we will practice “Mental Prayer,” as we reflect on, and desire the greatest gifts, so God may show each one of us a “More Excellent Way” (1 Cor. 12:13). Do your best to find a minimum of 15 minutes each day. By the regular practice of Mental Prayer, you will become more attuned to the “Still Small Voice.”

GUIDE TO MENTAL PRAYER: HERE

GOD’S WORD

The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace (Psalm 29:11).

But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace (Psalm 37:11).

My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee (Proverbs 3:1-2).

For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace (Romans 8:6).

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13)

HEROES’ WORDS

But above all preserve peace of heart. This is more valuable than any treasure. In order to preserve it there is nothing more useful than renouncing your own will and substituting for it the will of the divine heart. In this way his will can carry out for us whatever contributes to his glory, and we will be happy to be his subjects and to trust entirely in him. –St Margaret Mary Alacoque

Who except God can give you peace? Has the world ever been able to satisfy the heart?
 -Saint Gerard Majella

Peace is better than a fortune. –St. Francis de Sales

MEDITATION

Peace: the tranquillity of order. Peace is first of all the absence of conflict. But it is also the serenity experienced because there is no conflict. It is the calm that accompanies agreement of human wills, and is the foundation of every well-ordered society (Fr. John Hardon, Modern Catholic Dictionary).

BY THY HOLY AND IMMACULATE CONCEPTION, OH MARY, DELIVER US FROM EVIL. AMEN – OUR LADY OF AMERICA
